Manavlok Philosophy

MANAVLOK’s BELIEF: “GO TO THE PEOPLE, LIVE AMONG THEM, LEARN FROM THEM, LOVE THEM, START WITH WHAT THEY KNOW, BUILD ON WHAT THEY HAVE.”


MANAVLOK Creed

Manavlok’s philosophy is reflected in its name: MANAVLOK, which is the shortened form of “MArathwada NAVnirman LOKayat”, where ‘NAVNIRMAN’ means “Creation” and ‘LOKAYAT’, denotes “People’s opinion”. Manavlok thus symbolizes a new idea or an experiment in rural development, whereby villagers themselves are the focus of action and control.
